Maybe it helps if special-functors gets an upper bound on its mtl
dependency: mtl < 2.
BTW what is you ghc --version?
Because I have no problems fetching mtl-2:
$ ghc --version
The Glorious Glasgow Haskell Compilation System, version 6.12.1
$ cabal --version
cabal-install version 0.8.0
using version 220.127.116.11 of the Cabal library
$ cabal fetch mtl==18.104.22.168
